2006 Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1146889 92 points Wine Spectator

 Intense and well-focused, showing layered aromas of blackberry, espresso and toasty herbs, with complex flavors of briary plum, sage and hints of leather. The tannins are firm but ripe, with a hint of heat on the finish. (TF)  (10/2008)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2006 exhibits beautiful notes of chocolate, mocha, espresso roast, black cherries, and black currants. Deep and rich, with none of the tough tannins that can be found in 2006 Bordeaux varietals, its finish is deep, lush, and opulent. Consume it over the next decade. This boutique operation, with its heavy glass bottle and designer labels, seems to have hit its stride. There are about 500 cases each of the 2006 and 2007, which are virtually all Merlot.

K&L Notes

Amuse Bouche is brought to you by Napa's "first lady of wine" (says Robert Parker), Heidi Peterson Barrett. The artwork featured on the 2006 label was created by Louisiana artist George Rodrigue, famous for his loup-garou or "Blue Dog."
